Ladies and Gentlemen
I run ACAD LT 2010 on a Windows XP machine and also a Vista Laptop. I have tried to print the same drawing on both machines using the DWG to PDF facility with in AutoCAD. The drawing is a third party drawing in as much as I didn't draw it although it is an authentic ACAD DWG.
I get the same message but referring to different fonts - the message reads on the Vista machine:
"Cannot find or create the font "ArialMT". Some characters may not display or print correctly"
On the Windows XP machine it reads:
"Cannot find or create the font "Tahoma". Some characters may not display or print correctly"
The message seems to be generated by Adobe Reader.
Does any body have any ideas as I looked a right Charlie when I presented work that I thought was complete to one of my clients.
Thanks for your help.

Not a default setting, and the only problem I see is it avoids error messages as you noted above
The DWG to PDF.PC3 driver needs to be set to capture all fonts: PLOTTERMANAGER command, then double-click on the PC3 file in question, go to the Device Settings Tab, Custom Properties section, click on button with same name, and set the Font Handling to CAPTURE ALL.
Thanks for that. Is the default not set to capture all? If it isn't, is there a negative to setting it to capture all (file sizes larger etc)?
